When the United States was locked in an escalating cold war with the former Soviet Union staring in the early 1950’s, both sides tested their atomic and nuclear arsenals with open air tests and blasts.
And aside from the horrendous environmental damage, other more exotic tales have been reported over the years.
One such true creepy story comes from the Mojave Desert to the north of Kingman, Arizona. Did some kind of alien ship (or “flying saucer” in the parlance of the time) sustain damage from the 1953 open air test at Yucca Flats in Nevada and come down along with its alien pilots?
Were others involved who might of stolen wreckage from the crashed ship and hid it from the Army’s UFO crash retrieval teams?
But surely the strangest part of the whole Mojave Desert mystery, are the stories circulating that one of the alien crew members survived – was captured by US forces – and ultimately became an asset to the teams at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base who were tasked with reverse engineering the captured UFO!
A another strange, and somewhat scary story from the master of Mojave Mysteries, Author M.L. Behrman.
Prospecting on another man’s claim can be a risky business, as this claim-jumper found out while looking for gold in the remote mountains outside of Searchlight, NV.
But it wasn’t the owner or local sheriff that had the man terrified, it was something quite out of this world.
You be the judge in this spooky tale from Mojave Mysteries Author M.L. Behrman
A true creepy story and one of the Mojave desert’s more obscure mysteries, this tale is relatively unknown within established UFO and flying saucer circles. If not for a chance encounter with the man who actually saw the alien (or what ever it was) the whole terrifying tale would have remained lost to the world.
But was the creature (or alien) actually “guarding” the location? Or was there another motive altogether? Either way, it makes for an exciting mystery from the vast and remote Mojave Desert.
They say crime doesn’t pay, especially if you have creatures from another world watching your goods!
Did cowboys see UFOs? Were there newspaper reports of strange flying craft and contact with their pilots?
Starting in the early 1850’s, people all across the west, cowboys and “city slickers” were seeing strange lights and craft in the sky. Some even claimed to have been able to make out humans or strange entities aboard the aerial visitors and of course, there were even reports of crashes and people actually coming face to face with the pilots and crews of these mysterious craft.

One of the most interesting aspects of the phenomenon, is how it seemed to mirror the technology of the day to some extent. Many of the silent machines were described as “air ships” or “dirigibles”, exactly the kind of air-going craft humans of the time were working on, but no where near as able or capable as what was being observed in the night skies.
Was a secret or hidden hand guiding us? Did a higher intelligence hope to entice us to further exploits by showing us what was possible?
It’s an interesting aspect that I think many times is over-looked.
Now, that’s not to say some of the pilots encountered didn’t claim to be from Mars or some other fairly typical home for venturing aliens, but it does make one wonder if these things might yet be found to be from here on Earth or a different dimension. Either way, it’s a trip to think that people in the old west were also seeing things in the night sky they couldn’t explain and the phenomenon continues out in the Mojave Desert to this day!
Author M.L. Behrman brings you the TRUE story of cowboys and aliens!
It seems when it comes to UFOs coming down, the desert is the favorite place to crash land. And in 2008, in the small Mojave Desert town of Needles, California, we have an incident that contains all the elements of your classic “crashed UFO” story – a mysterious object that falls from the sky, black helicopters allegedly from Area 51 and of course, those mavens of mischief – the infamous Men In Black….
Join Author M.L. Behrman as he tells the story…
Now, to be sure, many serious researchers and authors have studied this case, and it definitely makes one wonder … but what actually fell from the skies that night? And WHO was behind it?
Some Mojave desert mysteries are more urban legend than fact, but this one is a truly puzzling bit of flying saucer or UFO crash lore – something DID come down, there are enough witnesses and television news casts to attest to that – but what?
